The agency has been appointed by the Department for International Development (DfID) and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR).
The week is taking place between 8 and 12 June, and will highlight the importance of global trade in creating jobs and growth in the current economic climate. It is part of a wider government drive to maintain open and fair markets and resist protectionism in the face of a global downturn and falling international trade flows.
The week will help showcase the success of the UK as a trading nation and the importance of global trade to international development.
Events will be held throughout the UK and worldwide, starting with an international trade conference in London, which will be attended by business leaders and leaders in trade policy from across the globe.
